More signs that Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata will soon sign for Chelsea


Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is edging closer to Chelsea after Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta confirmed that he will return in Spain.

As reported so far this month, the Spanish giants will exercise their £23million buy-back option in the coming days but only to sell him at a profit during the summer transfer window.

The Bianconeri do not possess the financial resources to resign him on a permanent basis and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is not interested in paying more than £20million to add a new striker to his squad.

Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested but Italy's Antonio Conte has made personal contact with the 23-year-old to convince him to make a move to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues continue to be strong favourites to add the talented Spaniard to their squad and an announcement could be made at the end of the Euro 2016 Championship.

"Real Madrid will exercise their right to repurchase," Marotta told reporters.

"We expect their offer in writing in the coming day, then we'll see, but the possibilities that he will be a Juventus player next season are few, and we will try to replace him with an equally-good player."
